We are joined by Lee Beers, Ohio State University Extension Educator in Trumbull County. Lee has researched the rules, regulations, markets, economics and agronomy of growing hemp.

Episode 43 – 2019 on-Farm Research Overview – eFields

We are joined by Jason Hartschuh and Chris Zoller, Ohio State University Extension educators who worked with farmers in their counties to conduct on-farm research trials published in the 2019 eFields Report. This is the 3rd year for this program and includes 88 trials in 30 counties across Ohio. Soybean seeding rate and nitrogen application to corn are a couple of trials highlighted in the podcast, along with some forage studies that were added due to prevented plant situations.
